BIB 375 New Testament Ethics


An introduction to the field of NT ethics, focusing on the theological frameworks and pastoral concerns out of which the NT authors drew moral norms and the motivational structures that promoted those norms. This is a synthesizing course bringing together aspects of theology, biblical studies, ethics, and hermeneutics, with a special focus on how we read texts ethically. Topics covered in the course include: 1) the ‘moral vision’ of the NT, 2) character ethics and character formation, 3) the ethical functions of different literary genres, 4) ethical systems in the Greco-Roman world, and 5) reading scripture as wisdom. Prerequisite(s): BIB 277 , BIB 278 . 3 hour(s).
